One of the sons of Besançon is Charles Nodier, born in 1780. His father was lawyer and mayor of Besançon. He turned against Napolean and the French Revolution in 1802 and was banned for this to Besançon. That didn’t really help, because he was involved in another two conspiracies gains Napoleon in 1804 and 1812. Obviously, he didn’t succeed.
